coverage of detroit, particularly of the art scene and young bohemians coming in. it was kind of cool at first, they started grating on me a bit after a while. i feel that some of that was striven to people coming from places like brooklyn and fighting this place they could really romanticize. you know, living in a place like new york communally theo like you missed the golden era of coming out, bohemian grittiness that people think they are looking for. but the east village in the 80s or whatever. i think detroit and a very superficial way came to represent that for some people. >> do you think that is a distraction from the real story here? are the real trajectory of the? >> all things considered, positive coverage about detroit is good. obviously it is annoying. detailed city story, where lake people under 30 will save detroit and everybody was white. officiously, really? so i think it's distortion were then distraction. all the stuff happening is great and exciting, but it's such a tiny little pocket.
